There was drama in Karati village in Naivasha after a middle-aged woman and a pastor exhumed the body of baby promising to resurrect her.

Residents were shocked when the two hired local youth to open the fresh grave.

The baby is said to have died on December 23, 2018 and buried on December 26.

The mother has, however, been in denial over her baby’s death and waked Wednesday morning ready to ‘resurrect’ her through prayers.

“The woman is yet to come to terms with the loss of her daughter and some men who claim to be religious leaders have taken advantage of the situation,” area chief Samuel Ng’ang’a said.

The chief lamented that some religious leaders are taking advantage of their followers’ beliefs.

“These are some of the churches that are misleading its followers that they can even raise someone who has died and this is totally wrong,” he said.

Police were called and took the body to the mortuary as the pastor and the woman were arrested.
